Hey guys, I am hoping you could help me out...I am having an issue with what feels like a miss or hesitation, it only seems to happen when i am going up hills..It doesnt feel like a spark plug miss...Its is worse than that..Also when I come to a stop my truck will get stuck for a few seconds and not move when I press on the gas..I am guessing it has something to do with my transmission..My air filter in a brand new k&n so I know that is not clogged and I also cleaned out my throttle body..I am leaning towards my torque converter..My transmission is making a loud whining noise upon acceleration, I thought it was my rear end, but I I change the gasket and the rear end looks damn good for having 240,000 miles on my truck..I am going to try and change transmission gasket and filter, and put new fluid in..Hopefully that will smooth things out, or maybe its time for a new trans..Any help would appreciated...

Try cleaning the MAF with CRC MAF cleaner, its in a silver can. A dirty MAF can send bad signals to the trucks computer and affect the transmission.

Well i tried to MAF Cleaner and it seemed to help a little, but I am still having the same issue.. It feels like a bad spark plug. Its very weird, I can be at a stop sign and try to take off and the truck goes no where for a few seconds, I take my foot off the gas and back on and it goes..I am getting real frusterated, I just dont want to waste money on parts I dont need, I am on a pretty tight budget right now..Any other suggestions..
